Illustrating avariety of computational and explanatory challenges, the bookdemonstrates principles and practical implications of exploring andassessing the fitness of information in an extensible framework ofadaptive landscapes. The book’s first three chapters introduce fundamentalprinciples and practical examples in connection to the nature ofaesthetics, mental models, and the subjectivity of evidence. Inparticular, the underlying question is how these issues can beaddressed quantitatively, not only computationally but alsoexplanatorily. The next chapter illustrates how one can reduce thelevel of complexity in understanding the structure and dynamics ofscientific knowledge through the design and use of the CiteSpacesystem for visualizing and analyzing emerging trends in scientificliterature. The following two chapters explain the concepts ofstructural variation and the fitness of information in a frameworkthat builds on the idea of fitness landscape originally introducedto study population evolution. The final chapter presents adual-map overlay technique and demonstrates how it supports avariety of analytic tasks for a new type of portfolioanalysis. The Fitness of Information: Quantitative Assessments of CriticalEvidence also features: In-depth case studies and examples that characterizefar-reaching concepts, illustrate underlying principles, anddemonstrate profound challenges and complexities at various levelsof analytic reasoning Wide-ranging topics that underline the common theme, from thesubjectivity of evidence in criminal trials to detecting earlysigns of critical transitions and mechanisms behind radicalpatents An extensible and unifying framework for visual analytics bytransforming analytic reasoning tasks to the assessment of criticalevidence The Fitness of Information: Quantitative Assessments of CriticalEvidence is a suitable reference for researchers, analysts, andpractitioners who are interested in analyzing evidence and makingdecisions with incomplete, uncertain, and even conflictinginformation.

1 October 1814 to 31 August 1815
Author: Thomas Jefferson
Publisher: Princeton University Press
Volume Eight of the project documenting Thomas Jefferson's last years presents 591 documents dated from 1 October 1814 to 31 August 1815. Jefferson is overjoyed by American victories late in the War of 1812 and highly interested in the treaty negotiations that ultimately end the conflict. Following Congress's decision to purchase his library, he oversees the counting, packing, and transportation of his books to Washington. Jefferson uses most of the funds from the sale to pay old debts but spends some of the proceeds on new titles. He resigns from the presidency of the American Philosophical Society, revises draft chapters of Louis H. Girardin's history of Virginia, and advises William Wirt on revolutionary-era Stamp Act resolutions. Jefferson criticizes those who discuss politics from the pulpit, and he drafts a bill to transform the Albemarle Academy into Central College. Monticello visitors Francis W. Gilmer, Francis C. Gray, and George Ticknor describe the mountaintop and its inhabitants, and Gray's visit leads to an exchange with Jefferson about how many generations of white interbreeding it takes to clear Negro blood. Finally, although death takes his nephew Peter Carr and brother Randolph Jefferson, the marriage of his grandson Thomas Jefferson Randolph is a continuing source of great happiness.

Author: National Research Council,Federal Judicial Center,Policy and Global Affairs,Committee on Science, Technology, and Law,Committee on the Development of the Third Edition of the Reference Manual on Scientific Evidence
Publisher: National Academies Press
Category: Political Science
The Reference Manual on Scientific Evidence, Third Edition, assists judges in managing cases involving complex scientific and technical evidence by describing the basic tenets of key scientific fields from which legal evidence is typically derived and by providing examples of cases in which that evidence has been used. First published in 1994 by the Federal Judicial Center, the Reference Manual on Scientific Evidence has been relied upon in the legal and academic communities and is often cited by various courts and others. Judges faced with disputes over the admissibility of scientific and technical evidence refer to the manual to help them better understand and evaluate the relevance, reliability and usefulness of the evidence being proffered. The manual is not intended to tell judges what is good science and what is not. Instead, it serves to help judges identify issues on which experts are likely to differ and to guide the inquiry of the court in seeking an informed resolution of the conflict. The core of the manual consists of a series of chapters (reference guides) on various scientific topics, each authored by an expert in that field. The topics have been chosen by an oversight committee because of their complexity and frequency in litigation. Each chapter is intended to provide a general overview of the topic in lay terms, identifying issues that will be useful to judges and others in the legal profession. They are written for a non-technical audience and are not intended as exhaustive presentations of the topic. Rather, the chapters seek to provide judges with the basic information in an area of science, to allow them to have an informed conversation with the experts and attorneys.
